The best things come in threes, and that s why we are bundling three books together here.
The best things come in threes, and that s why we are bundling three books together here. For starters, five case studies from Africa, Asia and Central America, on gender perspectives in natural resources management, are presented in the sixth book in the Gender, Society & Development series of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT). It is a good read and includes a useful bibliography of both printed and online publications, as well as Web links. One case addresses the changing rights to common pool resources and land in West Africa. If these issues interest you, then you might want to read a new publication in FAO s Legislative Studies. Issue 76 is dedicated to gender and law in agriculture. A standard factual work, describing rights and laws for women with regard to natural resources, it is for female agricultural workers and self-employed rural women. Regional overviews are offered from all continents; some countries, such as Burkina Faso, Fiji and Kenya, are described in more detail than others. Once you have finished the final chapter on legal reform and the implementation of gender responsive laws, you can start reading Gender and access to land in issue 4 in the FAO Land Tenure Studies. It seeks to raise awareness on gender issues and access to land, and provides guidelines for land administrators to take more account of the specifics of women s rights and roles.
